Attorney at Gina Corena & Associates

Practice Areas: Personal Injury

Motorcycle accidents involving uninsured drivers in Las Vegas can be devastating. The consequences of a motorcycle wreck may include physical injuries, psychological trauma, and financial strain.

If you ride a motorcycle in Nevada, it’s essential to understand your legal options should you be injured in a collision with an uninsured driver. The following guide will explain how you may pursue compensation in these circumstances. We’ll also discuss how Corena Law can help you navigate this difficult situation.

Legal Options for Motorcycle Riders Hit by Uninsured Drivers in Las Vegas

OptionDescription
Uninsured Motorist (UM) Coverage
  • Optional coverage that protects you if an uninsured driver causes an accident
  • Can help cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage
Personal Injury Lawsuit
  • Filing a lawsuit against the uninsured driver
  • Requires proving the driver’s negligence and liability for your damages
  • Can be challenging to collect compensation if the driver has limited assets or income
Exploring Alternative Compensation Sources
  • Investigating other potential sources of compensation
  • May include your health insurance, personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, or third-party claims against other liable parties

What happens if the person at fault in an accident has no insurance in Nevada?

If the at-fault driver in a Nevada accident has no insurance, you can:

  • File a claim with your own uninsured motorist coverage.
  • Sue the driver directly, though collecting compensation may be difficult.
  • Explore alternative compensation sources, like health insurance or PIP coverage.

Consult an experienced attorney to navigate your options.

Understanding Nevada’s Insurance Requirements

Minimum Liability Insurance Coverage

Every driver in Nevada must have liability insurance, meeting the minimum requirements set by law. This coverage aims to shield others from financial losses if you cause an accident resulting in injuries or property damage. Nevada’s minimum liability insurance requirements are:

  • $25,000 — if bodily injury or death to one person is involved
  • $50,000 — bodily injury or death to two or more persons is involved
  • $20,000 for damage to property

These are the minimum coverage amounts the law requires.  Motorcyclists must understand that they may not be enough to cover all the damages in a serious motorcycle accident. Motorcycle accidents often lead to severe injuries, high medical bills, and significant property damage.

Workplace Accidents

A victim’s expenses after a motorcycle crash can quickly exceed the minimum liability coverage amounts. This leaves the at-fault party personally liable for the remaining damages. However, the at-fault party might not have the means to cover a victim’s losses. Therefore, it’s strongly advised that motorcycle riders consider purchasing higher liability coverage limits to better safeguard themselves financially in the event of an accident.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage offer a way for motorcyclists to financially protect themselves in Las Vegas. These optional coverages kick in when an at-fault driver has insufficient insurance. UM and UIM coverage can help cover the cost of the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages

UM/UIM coverage is a smart investment if you ride a motorcycle in Nevada. Purchasing these forms of coverage now can guard against more significant financial woes in the future.

“Nevada’s minimum liability insurance may not fully protect motorcycle riders in a serious accident. Choosing uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage can provide a crucial safety net.”

Pursuing Legal Action Against Uninsured Drivers

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

If an uninsured driver hits you while riding your motorcycle in Las Vegas, you could file a personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation for your medical bills and related losses. To succeed, you must prove:

  • The driver had a duty of care
  • The driver breached that duty
  • The breach caused your injuries and damages
  • You suffered actual damages

Challenges in Collecting Compensation

Collecting compensation when suing an uninsured driver can prove challenging. This may be true even if you win your case.

Uninsured drivers may have few assets or income. Recovering any damages a jury awards you will be difficult if the driver who caused the wreck isn’t wealthy. In such cases, your lawyer may consider other options, such as:

  • Your own UM/UIM coverage
  • Third-party claims against other liable parties
  • Wage garnishments or property liens against the at-fault driver

The Importance of Thorough Investigation

Building a strong case against an uninsured driver requires thoroughly investigating the accident and gathering solid evidence. This may involve:

  • Reviewing police reports and accident scene evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Analyzing medical records and expert testimony
  • Investigating the at-fault driver’s assets and financial resources

An adept lawyer well-versed in motorcycle accidents can leverage their knowledge and their law firm’s resources to build a robust case.

“Pursuing legal action against an uninsured driver can be complex and challenging. However, with the help of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney, you can improve your chances of securing the compensation you deserve.”
